    Find out if you'll be gullible regarding fraudulant emails by taking this test:

    http://survey.mailfrontier.com/survey/quiztest.html

    Can you decide which are fraudulant and which are legitimate? Some of the correct answers may surprise you ;)

    BTW, going by some of the answers I'd be very careful if you receive any emails asking from a bank or other organisation that uses secure banking services - some of these phishing mails are very obvious but others.... :(

    Ah. Only 6. Mind you I erred on the side of caution, most of my wrong answers were where I'd put fraud and they were actually legit.
    Does this make a me a suspicious paranoid whacko?

    Yes :)

    But that's probably a good thing when dealing with this subject.

    9 out of 10. The one I got wrong was the US bank one - put as legit but was a fraud :shock: but I was suspicious - wanted to see the form, but of course it was disabled...

    Thanks for posting up the link though - it prooves a point - some of them were very convincing even to an old cynic like me.

    10/10 :-D

    To be honest, I've already received (sometimes several times) most of the fraudulent emails on this list. Most of the ones here were better attempts than some of those I've had.

    I always ask myself have I done business with these people? If not I go to the website (by typing in myself) and use the site's own links to report fraud - if they have them. It surprised me how many don't.
